|Presents Dorothy Collins - Matthew Paul Argall|
Just some video I (Argall) edited together, with clips of Dorothy Collins singing songs on the "Your Hit Parade" series, as well as a few of her Lucky Strike commercials. Yes, I realise this video has a silly title...but it's a catchy title, much like some of the songs she sings. (note: while the "Your Hit Parade" TV series is public domain, the compositions she performs are still copyrighted. So maybe not a wise idea to upload it to YouTube)

|Obscure 1950s Singers Sing On TV for You - Matthew Paul Argall|
A collection of 1950s television clips (edited together by me!), featuring singers that Prince Vegeta hasn't heard of. Some of these singers were well-known at the time and are still remembered by those alive at the time. Some of these singers are noteworthy in some way. Some of them were obscure then and obscure now. Some of them don't matter in the slightest. But all of them are very talented! Over 20 singers, with clips from 14 different television series.

An episode of "Kraft Music Hall", an NBC variety series. Hosted by Milton Berle, this episode also features Eydie Gormé and Walter Pidgeon. Lots of music and comedy. This episode also contains lots of fun dated references, as well as the original commercials for various products by Kraft. I believe this was originally telecast in colo(u)r, but this copy is in black-and-white. I don't know if the colo(u)r version still exists.

An episode of "Kraft Music Hall", an NBC variety series. Hosted by Milton Berle, this episode also features Jimmy Durante and Polly Bergen. Lots of fun dated references to things like the Pioneer 2 moon mission, as well as embarrassingly politically incorrect humor about fat people. Please note that the commercials are missing, and the picture quality is a bit iffy.

|''Perry Presents'' - 11 July 1959|
An episode of summer replacement series "Perry Presents", broadcast on NBC. Perry does not appear in this show, but it DOES feature Tony Bennett, Gloria DeHaven and The Four Lads. If you do not enjoy these performers, then avoid this upload, as the show is focused on these 3 acts. Commercials intact (for RCA, nylon tyres, and Sunbeam). WARNING: There is a VERY annoying time-code on this copy. It's very annoying and gets in the way...
